>> it feels like the middle of july. a hot day in the middle of july. our bodies have been slow adjusting to that. that's why it feels so oppressive today and feels like 100 degrees out there. except at the shore and in the poconos, for example. isolated thunderstorms, not feeling like 100 degrees if you're under one of those. the weekend won't be quite as hot or humid. most of the area is dry, like we are around philadelphia region but not everywhere. 93 degrees now, southwest wind at 16 miles an hour. we have been as high as 94 so far, going up to near 91 tomorrow. if we do hit 90 that will be three in a row and that means our first heat wave. 93 in philadelphia 90 in allentown. you are about to get cooled off with a thunderstorm. 92 in dover and georgetown and somewhat cooler closer to the beaches but right at the beaches, it's way cooler. only 74 degrees in cape may point, 74 in north wildwood, 72

that and going into skippack for example, by 5:30. the one up by the allentown area getting to bethlehem at 5:20, easton at 5:40. for the shore, we are not really expecting showers and storms. it will be a little warmer tomorrow because the wind direction is different. a northwest wind at ten miles an hour. might get a sea breeze later in the day. on sunday it's an onshore wind all day. that's why it's likely to be cooler. if there's any shower it will be down toward the delaware beaches on sunday afternoon. in the poconos, best chance of showers or storms would be sunday afternoon. it will be less humid as we go through the day tomorrow. you'll notice that in the poconos even tomorrow. warm and humid with isolated evening thunderstorms. 77 degrees in philadelphia for the low. tomorrow mostly sunny day. not predicting storms with that northwest wind bringing in drier
air. but up near 90 degrees for the high temperature. then into the mid 80s, generally dry on sunday but the clouds increase. could see some showers or storms sunday night and especially monday getting more humid again as we go into tuesday as well and even stormier perhaps later in the week. the eagles season is still several months away but one member of the birds already proving he's a winner. he is the prize at one front door today that drastically altered the lives of an area family. caught from above, a viral video from a day care that has left several people [ inaudible ].

pottstown. you can tell it's been raining there. it's still in the 90s throughout delaware, including at lewes. much cooler at the beaches at the jersey shore, only in the 70s. 73 in avalon 74 in beach haven. atlantic city temperature of 75 right on the boardwalk. there's a cold front that will put an end to some of this. we have drier and cooler air coming in behind it. as we head into the weekend. these are the storms one of the storms weakened quite a bit just in the last half hour or so. it had a lot of lightning. now it hardly has any. right along the pennsylvania turnpike, though coming into norristown. the other storm is the one that produced the wind damage and this is in the lehigh valley and a warning has now been extended as the storm is right over easton and nazareth right now with some pretty heavy rain. this red area indicating a
rainfall rate of close to three inches per hour so big downpours with that cell. that continues to move to the east toward new jersey. speaking of new jersey over the weekend, it's actually going to be warmer at the jersey beaches behind the cold front. it's all about the wind direction. wind direction will be out of the northwest, it's a land breeze so getting to the 80s tomorrow before the sea breeze kicks in. then the onshore wind on sunday will keep you cooler, a lot like today. in the poconos, 78 degrees with lower humidity. a really nice day tomorrow. then the clouds increase on sunday, chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon. the future cast shows the temperatures staying up for much of the night tonight. by tomorrow morning, we are near 80 degrees already at 8:00 a.m. but with a northwest wind and the cooler area coming down that's going to prevent us from getting anywhere near as hot as it got today. the humidity will be
significantly lower as well. you should notice that difference. warm and humid with those isolated evening thunderstorms. 77 degrees for the low. tomorrow, a hot day but not as hot or humid as today. highs near 90 mostly sunny skies. that northwest wind making the difference. then on sunday the clouds start to increase. best chance of storms is at night and into monday. warm and humid on tuesday and the best chance of storms and maybe some heavy rain later in the week. >> thank you, glenn. despite an unexpected visit by president obama, who made a last minute appeal to democrats on his pacific trade deal the house voted the measure down today. it was a rare instance where congressional democrats were the big road block to an obama legislative priority. the president traveled to the hill to speak with skeptical house democrats. the surprise meeting happened shortly before a series of house votes on the so-called fast track authority that grants the president power to negotiate a deal that can't be adjusted by
congress. let's go now to moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. chuck, so glad to have you with us. tell us why democrats were opposed to the president's trade plan and really, what's next for this measure? >> well look, here's why they're opposed. this is not very popular with labor unions and this is not very popular with the core part of the democratic base. the people that are left in congress, the house democrats that are left are those that represent some of the deepest blue congressional districts in the country who have a lot -- where labor unions have a lot of influence. the president was just on opposing sides with labor. labor fought this tooth and nail. labor threatened house lawmakers, democrats that voted with the president with primary challenges. this is a good old-fashioned way of when a politician's looking out for their own political survival and many of these house democrats looked at what was happening to them and figured it wasn't worth the risk of getting
primaried even if it was meaning dealing what could be a legacy blow to their own president. >> it really was sort of confusing because they were like two votes today. what's next for this measure? >> all right. so this is why it's confusing. the two votes are this. what got voted down is something called trade assistance insurance. what this is is that any worker that feels as if their job gets outsourced to another country because of a trade agreement by the united states there is money from the government to help with retraining and job placement, things like that. it's something democrats have demanded over the years for free trade agreements. president obama has said he won't sign a trade agreement that doesn't have this. but democrats decided to vote this down collectively as a way to stop the push for the other part of the trade agreement which as you noted did pass. but the way the legislation works, the senate passed both.
the house only passed one. this can't get to the president's desk. that's why it's quote unquote been effectively killed. i know this is getting into sausage making here. here's what happens next. in the next 72 hours the speaker of the house has the ability to bring back the bill that got voted down this trade assistance insurance. that's what's going to happen. you will see the president again probably making tons of phone calls, personal help john boehner on the republican side is going to see if he can find more republican votes for this and they will try to do a revote to see if they salvage this. i'm skeptical but that's what you will see happen. >> all right. it certainly isn't over. chuck todd "meet the press" moderator live in washington tonight. thanks for sorting it out for us. we will see you of course on sunday. "meet the press" this sunday morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. to hula dancing now. you heard me right. the serious question could it help heal breast cancer?
that's just what doctors in hawaii want to know. they are following breast cancer survivors who hula to learn if the traditional dance improves their health. researchers say the moods of the women improved. now they want to know if that leads to a reduced risk of recurrence. all the women continued dancing even when the study ended. hopefully they were inside when they danced on a day like today. >> right. that's for sure. speaking of what it's like outside today, boy, it's miserable. >> that's right. heat and humidity and hula dancing. no just kidding. some backyard pools in our area could soon be off-limits. the reason why all new on "nbc 10 news at 5:00." then coming up on "nbc 10 news at 6:00," earlier this week we told you about some abandoned gas stations that shore residents say are eyesores. tonight see what action is being taken.
[alarms blaring] ohhhhh... whoa whoa whoa! who's responsible for this?!? if something goes wrong, you find a scapegoat. ...rick. it's what you do. ahhhhhhhh! what'd you say? uh-oh! kelly! if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. rick. don't walk away from me. ahhhhhhhh!
new at 5:00 a beach battle in delaware. >> the water brings cash for homeowners and also brings clamor. the controversy's unfolding in rehoboth beach. people there could soon be banned from using pools. tim furlong is live there. i understand that not everyone's happy with the proposal right? >> reporter: that's right. you look in the official guide and you see plenty of ads, rent
rental houses with swimming pools. some people who live here year round say the rental pools are ruining their town. they want them closed up to renters all together. >> this is unreasonable noise. this is noise that really breaks your back. >> reporter: donna moved here because she loved the neighborhood feel but says more big rental houses like this seven bedroom one that sleeps 18 behind her house -- >> some of the other pool properties are renting for like $12,000 a week. >> reporter: she says they are ruining the town. she and others say the problems are specifically coming from the rental houses with pools. >> it's relentless noise. it's people in the pools three and four times a day, screaming and shrieking. >> reporter: the mayor is with her. he proposed a plan that would tell homeowners you can rent your house but can't let renters use your pool. >> i think it's outrageous. >> reporter: john owns a big house that has a pool. he hasn't received any noise complaints about his tenants. he wonders if porches could be outlawed too and what about the play grounds where kids make noise? >> it's a horrific invasion of
private property rights. and it's tremendously unfair to the tenant community. >> reporter: john says it's unfair to make him lower his rents because tenants can't use the pool and says families with small kids and elderly folks look specifically for places with pools. he thinks the mayor wants to turn the town into a sleepy retirement community. donna fears the town will be turned into a loud renters only summer town. there is a clearly drawn line in the sand. beautiful day here. i called the mayor sam coolerper today. he didn't call me back. both sides hope a compromise can be reached. there's a noise ordinance in town, if a home gets too loud it is possible to enforce that but we know all over the country noise ordinances are subjective. they are very tough to enforce. in this very very beautiful delaware town things are getting a little ugly on this issue. tim furlong, nbc 10 news. coming up next on "nbc 10

philadelphia corridor. tomorrow, we may be hot again but not as hot or humid as today. on the radar, we just have seen isolated showers and storms. one of them right along the pennsylvania turnpike. that certainly has weakened but it's right along the turnpike at norristown now and headed toward abington and eventually to lower bucks county. this one caused some wind damage in whitehall township that just went by easton and is now just about to cross the delaware river into new jersey. the temperatures now are generally on the hot side except if you have been affected by one of those storms like pottstown, it's 78 degrees. it's 93 in philadelphia. at the beaches, it's a different story. that southerly wind southwest wind is a sea breeze in new jersey it's 73 in avalon, 74 degrees in beach haven. for much of the rest of the area, th
